If you could design a “new” series of tanks for the RedSea Reefer series, what would they look like and what features would they incorporate?

Junk the ato and incorporate a remote fuge.
I like that! The ATO on the 250 was a PITA. With the popularity of Triton, ATI etc rising a remote fudge would definitely be a welcome addition for those seeking to go that route

I love the Reefer series but really think they have hit their size/volume limit on a mass manufactured series of tanks. Surely it’s time for them to explore some different options and other versions with perhaps quite radical design changes?

Judging from the poll....it looks like the ‘lagoon’ style is the odds on favourite!!! However, there are still SIX more days until the poll ends.

I think they should perfect what they have first before starting anew... increase return pipe size as well as drain pipes. My reefer 900 has 2x 3/4" return pipes... smh. Should be at least 1".
Doesn’t seem to make sense...is it the case that it works out a lot cheaper for them to use the same pipe as their previous model (I believe that is the same size, please correct me if I’m wrong)

According to my calculations they could supply a 36(d) x 36 (w) x 30 (h) cube tank that would be 170 gallons (640 litres) ....loving that! Does anyone know how thick the glass would have to be on something like this?

I’ll never own another RS tank, I can’t trust em.
That’s a shame! I have seen a few negative reviews over the last year on some of their models but they have recieved overwelming and widespread praise both on their build quality and design for years.

I agree, 3/4" returns (unless theres like 4 of them) is hilariously small for that size of tank. Also, they should take a real hard look at all the failures they have had over the past year with quite a few of there models and rethink how they design and manufacturer these tanks and stands, especially the larger ones..

So based on the comments so far we could be looking at ‘potentially’ two new models :

1, Red Sea Reefer Squared (cube) - 170 gallons - 36 x 36 x30 )inches, 1inch (at least ) returns, external ghost/coast to coast overflow, Remote Fuge and lower than average stand to create an low boy’ for those wonderful top down photo opportunities. Did I miss anything?
